SeaMonkey is built with WebRTC support - it just lacks the dialog that prompts the user for permission to get the camera and microphone. I put together a small (and very old-fashioned) extension that adds a toolbar button, which you can use to turn on (and, more importantly, turn back off) a setting that overrides the permission dialog and allows SeaMonkey to get access to the webcam.

This extension is up at AMO now, with a couple of fixes:

This is probably a good enough reason to bump the thread: I just added H.264 support. When you activate the override, it'll ask you to install OpenH264 if you haven't yet. (You can also enable/disable OpenH264 from the extension's settings page.)

I bet a lot of WebRTC sites are switching from VP8 to H.264 now that Safari supports the latter.

Download link is the same as before.
